Henry: It’s because you’re scared all the time. I know. I used to be scared too. But that was before I found out. Mark: Found out what? Henry: That once you realize you can do anything… you’re free. You could fly. Nobody can touch you… nobody. Mark… don’t be afraid to fly.

There are honestly so many amazing things said in this short clip. It is an absolute must listen..here is my favorite: “A lot of kids are down on themselves, they feel like they can’t do things ‘cause there are people out there telling them what they can and can’t do. Kids need to understand, that as human beings, we are SO CAPABLE, of doing whatever the fuck we...

Sharing Is The New Networking →
bombtune: With the rise of collaborative business practices and professionally-geared social networks, sharing has become a better form of networking. Digital relationships are your starting place. What you share makes people interested in you. People can also tell when you try to impress. Phonies get caught avatar or not. Social networking pushes expression. This audacity translates to the...

Kobe: “So that’s the psychology of it. Growing up, I used to hear kids say all the time ‘I can’t guard you, but you can’t guard me.’ And when I hear somebody say that, I see it as an opportunity. ‘OK. So you’re conceding the fact that you can’t guard me. OK.’ Kobe: “So now you’re saying I can’t guard you,...

“Hey, uhh Rob, I hope I’m not disturbing anything right?” “Uhh no, what’s up Kob?” “Just wondering if you could just help me out with some conditioning work, that’s all.” I checked my clock. 4:15 AM. “Yeah sure, I’ll see you in the facility in a bit.” It took me about twenty minutes to get my gear and out of the hotel....

We Can Change Anything We Want to Change
My entire life I’ve been an extrovert on the inside and and introvert on the outside. Translation… most see me as an introvert, but that’s not how I see myself. I have the qualities of both. I can easily turn one on, in some situations. And I can not so easily turn one on, in other situations. I get deep satisfaction from both. Unfortunately(in my specific case), the introvert side has...
But, Maybe I Want to be a Circus Clown
We’re more ambitious as kids, because we’re less worried about what the feedback will be. No one is ever harsh to a child. They just say, “Nice try…try again” or “That was great…keep practicing.” So, they do. Consequently, something amazing happens. These very kids that we encouraged to “keep trying” become exactly what they want to be. They become doctors, lawyers, artists, dancers,...

Inspiration, Influences, and Telling Your Story
[Would it be fair to say that you’ve used the good the bad and the ugly from your life and expressed it in Harry Potter?] “….absolutely,100%.” ~ JK Rowling Most recently, I’ve been fascinated by studying J.K. Rowling. Why? Besides the fact that I’ve been a huge Harry Potter nerd my whole life (I’m talking, going to Barnes & Noble at midnight level nerd) …she wrote the greatest story of...

“You’ve never tasted desperate….and you’ll always fear what you don’t understand.”~Falcone(Batman Begins) The things I’ve told myself in my life are ridiculous. I’ll never live there, I’ll never do that, I’ll never work that job, I’ll never, never, never, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. I can’t, it’s not who I am, I’ll never be that person, so therefore I can’t do the things they do. I’m not...

I’ve never wanted to be anybody other than who I am. That’s why I put that exact Jay-Z quote underneath my header. And that’s why I’m renaming this blog. More importantly, hopefully, I’ll be changing the way I live my life. I’ve spent far too long living my life worried about fitting in and what people think of me. I’m done with that, it’s time to let others judge me, and laugh at me, and run to...

An Incredible Experience and a New Journey: My...
Sometime around three months ago I moved to New York City with two bags, no place to stay, and one awesome opportunity. That opportunity was Techstars NYC. Up to that point of my life I’d never even stepped foot in New York City… and as for my place to stay, let’s just say I’m still working on that. To quickly and quite frankly, unjustly, summarize Techstars NYC…it was simply a one of...

Don't Rely on Humble
For most of my life I’ve lived under the assumption that if I stayed true to being the most selfless, humble person, I could possibly be, I would stand out in my own right for doing so. Always reflecting praise, never patting myself on the back, cringing at the thought of a brag. Old fashioned hard work. That’s what I’m about. I truly hope that those closest to me could say that I’ve lived up to...
